Types of Tummy Tucks

With summer right around the corner, it is crunch time to get your dream body for all your summer activities. Whether you have just experienced a significant weight loss, have recently been pregnant, or are wishing to tone your abdomen with skin tightening, the tummy tuck procedure is a great option for you. However, it is important to know that there are different types of tummy tucks and which one would be best to achieve the optimum results that you will love. For information on your tummy tuck in Tampa, schedule a consultation with Dr. Brown.

Mini Tummy Tucks

Also called partial abdominoplasties, this mini tummy tuck procedure is ideal for the person would like alterations made only to the part of the abdomen below the belly button. With the benefits of this procedure including a shorter scar and recovery time, this procedure also often leaves the navel in place and without permanent scarring. Not everyone needs of a huge overhaul, and this is a great option for those looking to get minimal work done. By focusing on such a small part of the belly, you can get the benefits of a tummy tuck with fewer risks.

Full Tummy Tuck

According to the experts at Tampa Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, “With this surgery, skin and fat are removed from both the upper and lower abdomen by re-draping the skin and excising the excess.” The full tummy tuck procedure also provides a more youthful look to the abdomen and narrows the waistline to help with the much-desired hourglass appearance. There are many situations where trying to get a fit and flat stomach is impractical, such as time restrictions and post pregnancy weight. This is a great alternative for those situations.

Extended Tummy Tuck

This tummy tuck procedure involves the often-problematic ‘love handle’ area in addition to the removal of fat from the stomach area. Although the procedure involves a longer incision, The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery says this procedure “removes excess, hanging skin from the front (upper and lower abdomen)” and tightens the abdominal wall for desired results. With such an emphasis on an athletic build these days, getting rid of those love handles will make you feel more confident and fit. Why just settle for a flat stomach, when you can thin out the whole abdominal area?

Reverse Tummy Tuck

While it may initially sound like a reverse tummy tuck procedure reverses the results of a previous tummy tuck, this procedure actually pulls the skin upward towards the breasts/lower chest to tighten the skin on the upper part of the abdomen. The tummy tuck procedure has been improved so much over the years that they can essentially target any part of the abdominal area to tighten up whatever you desire. Just like bodybuilders focus on every section of the abdominal and make their upper and lower abdominal muscles stand out, the same concept is utilized for tummy tucks. You can get the whole stomach tightened, or just a problem area.

The Different Types of Body Contouring Procedures

Despite a good diet and regular exercise, there might be certain areas of your body that are not responding to either method. Thankfully, you have body contouring as an option. There are many options to choose when looking at body contouring procedures, depending on the area you would like to enhance. If you have more questions about body contouring procedures, don’t hesitate to contact the experts at Tampa Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery. Let’s take a look at some of the most common body contouring procedures that Dr. Joseph Brown offers:


Body Contouring

Body contouring procedure is performed after a patient loses a significant amount of weight, and needs some help getting to their ideal body size. Losing weight is hard enough, so this procedure is here to help. In most cases of extreme weight loss, patients are left with loose skin in the arms, face, neck, abdomen and thighs. This surgery is sometimes the only way to remove the extra skin and restore the contour of the body.


Liposuction is a procedure is designed to remove stubborn areas of fat around your body that do not respond to diet and exercise. Dr. Brown will permanently remove those stubborn areas of fat to maximize the contour of your body. It can make a dramatic change in the right patient.

Mommy Makeover

The joyful process of becoming a mother can most definitely take a toll on your body, and this procedure can make a huge difference. After getting back to a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise, some women may still have areas on their body that did not go back to normal. Doctors can perform the mommy makeover which could be a combination surgery of a tummy tuck, breast surgery and more as part of this procedure.


Breast Augmentation

For breast augmentation, during this procedure your doctor will place implants in your breasts to enhance your physique and curves. You will first discuss with Dr. Brown your goals and ideal look, which will then be implemented throughout the surgery.

Breast Reduction

Sometimes women who have larger breasts suffer from back pain and neck pain. Breast reduction can greatly relieve those symptoms by reducing the size of your breasts. The goal is to give women a smaller breast that is better shaped and lifted.

Breast Reconstruction

After winning a battle with breast cancer, some patients may want to reconstruct breast tissue that was removed. Patients should know that breast reconstruction is optional; sometimes after cancer treatment the last thing a patient may want is to be around more doctors and medical centers. If they do choose to have the procedure done, they should know that their care will be personalized and performed in a state-of-the-art facility.


Skin Treatments

Depending on a patient’s goals for their skin, their doctor can provide skin treatments to correct uneven tone, blemishes, uneven texture, wrinkles and more.
